Students may come into the field remembering a middle-school course that catalogued the countries of the world in a litany of place names, capital cities, primary exports, and so on. Such data are the raw material of geography, but they become much more useful and interesting when the "why" aspects are added in. Geography topics including climate change, energy supply, water availability, land degradation, urban design, and place identity. We look at how changing weather patterns and climate impact society and natural systems. We examine links and processes between the natural environment and human societies. We explore water, including hydrology, watershed management, ecosystem dynamics, and biogeography. And we do this through the use of geographic information systems, remote sensing, and other technology.
